The ins and outs of working on campus

August 19, 2011


With the majority of the student body receiving financial aid of some sort, it’s likely that your package will include a work-study position. (Note: A campus job does not necessarily have to be part of a financial aid package.) What does that mean, and how do you find those jobs? The college will be unveiling a new student employment website to help answer those questions, which will include a complete listing of campus job descriptions.

First-year students: First year students will be assigned to interview for certain positions during their Initiatives seminar and are expected to get in touch with their assigned supervisors before registration to set up an interview. If employment isn’t secured after an interview, it’s important to get in touch with the financial aid office (ext. 2663) as soon as possible for further assistance.

Continuing or transfer students: Continuing or transfer students should check out the Employment Opportunities bulletin board in the financial aid office, located in Pearsons Hall.

“Our intention is that 90 percent of students who have been offered work are placed by the end of Labor Day week,” says Senior Associate Director of Admissions Jon Urish.  “Simultaneous with that, work supervisors will communicate with [the financial aid office] about positions they still have to fill so that the openings can be posted online.”
